According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), electric mugs are generally considered to be electronic devices, and the rules for carrying them may vary from airline to airline and country to country. The following are the general carry-on regulations. Please note that these regulations may vary due to special circumstances, so check with the airline to obtain the regulations before traveling on a flight:
1. Portable electric mugs: Normally, portable electric mugs can be carried on board an airplane, subject to the following regulations:
- Mugs must comply with airline size and weight restrictions for electronic devices.
- Mugs must be removed from baggage and placed in a separate basket for screening at security checkpoints.
- The battery capacity of the heated mugs shall not normally exceed 100 Wh (watt-hours) or 20,000 mAh (milliampere-hours). 2.
2. Large electric mugs: Large electric mugs are generally not permitted to be carried on airplanes because their size and weight exceed the airline's limits for electronic devices. These large electric mugs may be considered contraband and will need to be handed over to the airline or checked baggage prior to boarding.
It is important to note that airline and country regulations on electronic devices may vary, so check with your airline for accurate regulations before traveling on a flight.
Additionally, due to security concerns, airlines may place restrictions on the number and type of electronic devices that can be carried on board, so make sure you follow the rules to ensure a smooth voyage.
